Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

Question: Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

Preferred Solution: Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

Hi guys,

Firstly thanks for any responces. I'm working with Word 2010. I would like to create a sort of interactive tempalte where the user would make selections (this could be via check boxes for example) as to what goes in to the document. Each section has already been predetermined. All this document and process would do is input the sections based on the choices the user makes.

Bare in mind this document is quite large and would be used to produce many doucments which small differents.

Any advice on how this could be done?

Hi, I am really hoping someone can help.

I am working on a MS Word mail merge document (whose format I do control). I need to populate a table on my document that lists the Fund #, Name and Value for up to 7 funds (3 columns and up to 7 rows). However, they do not want to have any empty rows in the table - if there are only 3 funds in the datasource, only 3 rows should show in the table. I thought there would be a way to use a bookmark to do this, but I haven't been able to figure it out.

Please help,

I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.

This is just one of those odd quirks I have run into. When I open a new document in Word, then open an older file, the new document closes and only the old one is displayed.Using Microsoft Office 2010, specifically Word.Windows 7 64-bitA bit of explanation, I often do research/writing for school or for fun. This issue has always happened, just one of those small annoyances.Here is the exact thing that is happening:1. I open a new (blank) word document, by clicking on the Word icon or by selecting "Open New Document" in the Word program.2. I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open. I must now open a new empty document to write in. What I want to happen:1. Open new document2. Open old document3.

Yes, you are right. That is normal for MS Word.Do this:Open a new document. Type something. Even a single space. Save it with a name you want. Now open an older document. Both documents can be on the screen or cascaded.If memory is not an issue, you can haven two instances of Word.

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

Regards

Answer:[SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as Solved......to a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

Hi,

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word.

On my previous computer with Windows 2000, I was able to make incremental backups of a Microsoft Word document while it was being created by me. The advantage of this was that if an "accident" happened and the document was lost or corrupted before it was completed or saved to a folder, the partially completed document could be retrieved from a special folder somewhere in C-drive. I was able to specify how often a new backup was created (ex.: every 3 minutes, ex.; every 10 minutes, etc.). It is possible that this special folder also contained backups of all previously saved Word documents, which were also being re-backed up every few minutes. -- I cannot find any reference to this on my new computer (Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2002) in the Windows search engine, or in the Word user interface "Help". I cannot remember how I found this feature on my previous (W~2000) computer. -- Thanks

I was working on a Word document that someone sent me by email in form of rar and saved the document. I now can't find the revised file and I have lost about 8 hours of work. Any ideas on where I can find this file? I looked in the email that was originally sent, but it is still the old file. I have also done searching on my computer with no luck. Help, I'm desperate!!! I have Word 2007. Please give me reply as soon as possible.
 

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

If you were only hitting "Save" and not "Save As" the document is likely, unfortunately, gone. You can try opening Word by itself and going through recent documents to see if it shows up. If you opened it directly from the email and the email was in Outlook, you might be able to find it in the Outlook Secure Temp Folder. To get to this folder, the easiest way is to send yourself a PDF file, open the PDF from the email then go to File | Properties and on the General tab (this is from memory, so I might be off a little bit) you'll find a location that you can click on. In this folder, you have a slight chance of finding the modified file. The only other option you have, that I can think of, would be digging through your temp folders hoping to find a .tmp or .doc file in there that has the content, but I give that about a .01% chance of happening. Good Luck!

I am trying to compile an index for my collected travelogues. My intention is to have the Main Entry contain the name of a country and the Sub Entry contain a place in that country (eg England/Canterbury). From what I can determine it doesn't seem possible to set a default Main Entry (eg England) and then mark sub-entries (eg Canterbury) so that each time I mark an entry it automatically becomes a sub-entry of the main entry. It seems to me (and I'm probably wrong) that compiling an index for a 124 page document will be very time consuming as I will have to manually enter the main entry and sub-entry each time I want an item to appear as a sub-entry of a main entry.

Does my post make sense? A summary of what I want is:

MAIN ENTRY: England (default so I don't have to keep typing it in)
SUB-ENTRY: Canterbury (entered by Word when I mark it)

I compiled an index for another document some time ago in the same style but can't remember what I did.

I'm in a bit of a muddle with a file. I run a Packard Bell computer with Windows 7 64 bit. I created a novel with word 2007, complete with an index. All seemed well until I wanted to change it in prep for making into an eBook. I removed the index marks and converted it to .doc format, and since then every time I do anything to the work it wont save it except as a new file in a new name. Then I can't delete the old file as it says it is still open (which it isn't). I can't change the name of it or move it or put it in a separate folder or anything. So now I have about six or seven of these frozen files scattered on my computer, getting confused as to which one is the most up to date, and I'm a bit worried that when I send one off for converting to eBook it might be rejected for being corrupted. I tried using an unlocker, and it said it had worked but the files are still frozen just the same. Help!!!

Answer:Word 2007 document frozen

Sounnds like you may be leaving temporary files around when the documents are saved/closed. Have a look in the folder where you document is stored for files with odd names starting with ~. These may be causing the problems.
For safety's sake do back everything up before deleting anything.
Hope this helps, but at least it will bring your post back to the top of the list and someone else might be able to give better advice.

In other words, I don't want my login name to be the author, I want my REAL name to be the author.

"The document recovery task pane contains some recoverd files that have not been opened. Would you like to view these files the next time you start Word?"
Yes, I want to view these files OR
No, remove the files, I have saved the files I need.

We click NO to remove the files, hit OK and it tells us it "can't delete the file, can't read from the source file or disk.". then we have to click OK 6 times for each file that is in the auto-recovery pane on the left.

Anyhow I have managed to copy these over into a folder but the problem I have is that the name of the document is not on the actual document so when these are printed out an passed over to a third party to look at and change it looks like i am going to have to write the name of the document onto each one.

Is there a way of automatically inserting the name of document into the actual document (the footer maybe) without having to open them up?

Are you trying to make file with just those pages? Or did you make changes through out the document, and want to save only the changes to certain pages?

How do you set Word 2007 so that each new document automatically have pagination, without you yourself need to insert page numbers each time. Thanks for replies!
 

Answer:Word 2007 - Automatic pagination of each new document

This may or may not be the correct way to do what you want, but it will work.

Create a Word document with the number in the Footer (I'm assuming you know how to do that). Save the blank (except for the Footer, of course) document in a convenient place and simply use it as a format for future Word documents. Problem solved.

Hello,

I am running Word 2007 on Vista. Every time I open up Word or try or try and create a new document, clicking on 'blank document', it opens up with several print screens that I created and saved as a different document.

No matter what I try and create, the 'blank' document always has these 6 print screen images in the document. Is there a way to get rid of these in my blank document template?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi there

My appoligies if there is already a thread on this topic, but I have tried to go through everything and have not picked anything up. My problem:

I have designed a letterhead layout for one of my clients in Microsoft Word 2007(there is an image inserted into the top of the document, then I have inserted text boxes containing contact details etc), now when the client opens the letterhead, she only sees the the image, the text boxes are gone???

Now she has just sent me an email explaining her problem, but when I open the attachment I see the text boxes with their content and everything else. Are we going crazy here? The ONLY thing I can think of, that would cause this problem, is that I am using Office 2007 and she is using and older version, but what boggles my mind here, is that I have saved the document as "Word 97-2003 document" and my client still can't see the text boxes (only the image header). Am I doing something wrong here? Is there something need to install?

I am using Windows XP, Professional, version 2002 (Service Pack 3) with Microsoft Office 2007, my client says she is also using XP 2002, but with Microsoft Office 2003.

Anyone's assistance here would be greatly appreciated.

Kindest Regards
Pam

Looks like you need to change the View settings from Reading Layout to whatever you want: Normal, Web, Print, or Outline will switch it back to the 'single page' layout.

How to remove preselected formatting Word 2007 documents. OR how to override existing formatting with different options ?

Answer:How to remove formatting from a Ms Word 2007 document

I'm not sure this is the best way to do this but you can make your changes such as tabs, borders, fonts etc and "save as" a template. Next time you run word you can click "New" and select "My Templates" and open the one you saved. I just looked into it and a better way to do this would be to make the changes you want to be the usual settings and then select the little arrow at the lower right hand corner of the "Page Setup" tab. Here you can select "Default" which will open a window that asks "Do you want to change the default settings for page setup" which is what I think you are trying to do. Good luck!message edited by chrisgraf2

Hi,

From time to time, when I open a Word document, it is opened read only. I have no idea why this happens. It is fairly infrequent (3-4 times a month) and seems random.
 
The problem is that I don't notice that it's read only, so I go about merrily on editing the document. When I try to save it, I get the Save As dialog. In  then have to save it under a different name, delete the old copy, and rename the new one. In addition to a royal pain, it screws up my archive log.
 
Is there a way that I can have Word warn me whenever a document is opened read only?

Sub Document_Open()
If ThisDocument.ReadOnly = False Then Exit Sub
MsgBox "This document is read only."
'UserForm1.Show
End Sub

I saved it in a Normal code module and set a breakpoint. It does get executed every time a document is opened, but the readonly test is always False, even when the document has the Read Only flag set and the title bar clearly says "(Read Only)".
 
Is there a way to modify this macro so that the MsgBox statement will execute when a document is opened read only?

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:

I then worked on them the next day not realizing that for some reason they were opened as "Read Only"
Seeing that, I copied the the text and saved them in new documents
I went to Documents and attempted to move the new documents into the folder with the originals but an error message reading something like "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program" when the file was NOT open

Later still at school, I opened it, worked on it again and saved it. As I was saving it I realized that the one I had originally opened from my boyfriend's house was the file extention .docx and the file extention my school uses, even though they both are Microsoft Word 2007, was .doc.

Answer:Solved: MS Word 2007 - tracked changes, but cannot print original document

Tricky - I've not had that particular problem before, but Word can certainly get its knickers in a knot over certain things, and Track Changes is one of them.

It sounds as though the file might be corrupted somewhere. If so, a workaround I've often used is:
1. Create a new blank Word doc.
2. Go copy everything out of the crap Word file but take great care to LEAVE BEHIND the very last paragraph marker. (You will need to make para marks visible to make sure).
3. Switch files, & paste everything into the new Word doc.

Don't know whether this will help, but it would be worth trying. It definitely works for many problems.

Does anyone know anything about WinCVS? My office has been using WinCVS for document versioning (because it's free and it works) and up until we switched to Office 2007, everything was fine. Now, we need to begin saving our documents (mostly Word) in the new format (with the .docx ext.), but I can't find a way to connect the new .docx version to the old .doc version(s). For example, a document called "document1.doc" has been altered and the new version is "document1.docx." Because the document is saved in the new Word 2007 format, with a new file extension, it will not save as the latest version of the old document, only as a new document. Is there a way to "connect" the old and new formats in WinCVS?
 

Answer:WinCVS for document versioning-switching from Word 2003 to 2007

If you want to save a document to be compatible to open in word 97-2003 you cannot simply automatically save the document because it will save as a .docx. Therefore you cannot click on the disk icon at the top to save your document.

Go to the at the top left corner.
Choose Save As. Another menu will appear.
Choose Word 97-2003 Document from the list.
Choose where to save your file.
After the file has been saved as a .doc you can now just press save instead of save as. You can also press on the save symbol (a floppy disk) to automatically save the file now.

Hello,

My system:
MS Windows XP Home fully updated
MS Office 2007 fully updated

The issue:
I have been sent a very large Word file. Unfortunately, every line of text in the file is terminated with a "print" (^P) character, and every paragraph ends with two such characters. As an example, a paragraph of text would look like this:
Terrorism works, to a large extent, because(^P)
terrorists use the media to(^P)
ensure their cause receives the publicity they desire.(^P)
(^P)​
The question:
How do I go about removing all the carriage return (^P) characters at the end of every line while retaining the same character (the second ^P) to keep the paragraphs apart?

All suggestions will be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.
Lane

howdy, I wonder if you could help? I have been tasked with finding a solution to a particulary annoying issue within Office 2007 Professional. The very first time you try and open up a Word Attachment within Outlook we receive an error message as follows :- "The System cannot find the file specified". If you leave Microsoft Word open and then double click the file again, the document opens.

I have tried all solutions\suggestions on how to fix this and none of these have helped. Has anyone else come across this issue and managed to resolve it?

I have Windows 2007 & Vista Business. Suddenly I have a saved text document that I can't do anything with. Can't print it, copy it or e-mail it or send it anywhere. All I can see when I right click are two "boxes" containing formatting options such as Paste, Font, Bullets etc.Hope you can help.

Answer:Have a document in Word 2007. Can't send, print or copy or e-mail it.

You can open it though right? Where did the text document originate from ? Where do you see those two boxes you mention when you right click (ie. in Word, etc)? Can you at least read the contents of the doc?

I'm also assuming that other documents work?

The title basically says it all. I would like to know how to combine a bunch of Word 2007 documents without overlapping the first page, so basically I want there to be as many pages as there is for the amount of documents I want to combine with the original. Let's say there's the title page, then I want to add another 20 pages, well I should have 21 pages in total by the end of this.

If anyone knows how to do this, it would be greatly appreicated.

Thanks.

When setting up a Word 2007 template I divide the document into various sections - some with form elements which I protect and others that are kept open.
In the protect dialogbox I simply "unprotect" parts of the document divided by section breaks. (Section 1 & 3 are protected but 2 & 4 are unprotected).

How can I use bullets or numbered lists on the parts of the document that are NOT protected? These commands are not available at all as soon as I protect the form parts (1 & 3) of the a document EVEN if the other parts (2 & 4) - divided by section breaks - are excluded from the protection.

I run Win XP sp 2 & Office 2007 + Classic Menu 3.93 from Addintools.com

AAm I the only one to have ever come across this problem? I actually find that it is repeatable and here is how I managed to do it.

Step 1 - Under the insert tab click on the "Picture" to insert a picture. In case it is important the picture I am inserting is a .png file.

Step 2 - Press Enter to insert a space below the picture that has just been inserted.

Step 3 - Under the references tab click on insert caption.

Now this is where things get interesting because Word has to think hard about this one. By the time the Caption dialog box shows up so that I can tell it what kind of caption etcetera, the document I was working in appears to have vanished except for a few thin verticle lines off to the side.

Step 4 - Hit cancel.

Everything is gone, however hitting ctrl-z does restore the document so that at least now it is viewable. The trouble is that clicking anywhere in the document now results in the cursor going back to the beginning of the document. On top the document now being basically useless, with rare exception, all of the options under all of the tab menus (Home, Insert, Page Layout, etc.) are no longer highlighted! I cannot use any of them.

Worse, I cannot figure out how to restore my document to the point before I inserted the picture!

Any ideas about what is going on and how I can fix/avoid this problem?

Thanks,
Jeremy

I am looking for a free word processing program similar to the Windows Office program that will open a Windows office 2007 document. Are there any out there? I found and downloaded AbiWord, but I can't figure out how to open the document I need.
 

Answer:free word processing program that will open a windows 2007 document?

You should be able to click File, click Open, browse to and select the file you want to open, and that's about it. Or right click the file, select Open with.... then browse to AbiWord's EXE file (probably in Program Files\AbiWord), and click OK. You can also try OpenOffice but it's a pretty large download at 120mb for the standard version, the 'Pro' version is about twice that size.
Open Office Standard http://www.majorgeeks.com/OpenOffice.org_For_Windows_d3461.html
Open Office Pro (aka Oxygen) http://www.majorgeeks.com/OxygenOffice_Professional_d5340.html
You can also use Universal Viewer to view the document, but you won't be able to make any changes to it or edit it in any way. UV is for viewing/printing only. If that's all you need, here's the link: http://www.majorgeeks.com/Universal_Viewer_Lite_d5422.html It integrates into the Windows right-click menu, so you'd just right click on the file in question and select Universal Viewer in the menu.
And all the programs mentioned above are 100% free to download and use!

How do I edit the macros of a document if the macro that closes the program is executing right when the document opens? It doesn't allow me enough time to go to View --> View Macros to delete or edit the auto-exec macro.
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007 auto-exec macro closing document

If you open a brand new document without any macros attached you should be able to change the application security level to high so that no macros will run which will then allow you to open the document with the code attached to edit it.

I have a very simple Word 2007 macro-enabled template that has a single ActiveX checkbox control and a simple one-line Document_New macro. When this .dotm file is stored in a network folder that has been setup in Word 2007 to be a trusted location, Word always aborts when creating a new file based on this template.

If the ActiveX control is removed, or the macro code is removed, or the file is placed in a non-trusted location (and you select the option to enable macros when you get the security banner warning), it functions just fine. It's just the combination of ActiveX, macro code in a trusted location that causes the crash. I can e-mail the file for those that want to check it out.

Anyone got any ideas how to correct this strange one?

BTW, I have Office 2007 SP2.

Thanks!

This is a known issue with Word 2007 after installing another one of their hot-fixes (KB2251419). They applied a hot-fix (KB2449499) for it in October 2010

Hello all,
I am fairly new to macros and am looking to split a large word document into smaller files based on a text string within the document, and then save those files as individual word documents, or as a bonus, PDF documents. The text string is "HEADER DATA".

Basically, I want the macro to find the text string "HEADER DATA", then select that page and all pages up to but not including the next instance of "HEADER DATA", then cut those pages from the original document, create a new document with the same formatting/ page layout, and save that document with a new file name. I want the process repeated until the end of the document, and each file saved with a new file name.

Some attributes about the file:

The text string "HEADER DATA" is always in the same location on a page, but is not at the top of the page.
The format and layout of the new document must match the current document.

Here is something I came up with (don't laugh too hard, lol). This will extract the first pages as intended, and saves the new file, but then Word stops responding. I don't quite know what the error is. Thank you in advance for any help.

This is a pretty advanced topic. I don't know if anyone here can help me.

I need to create a Form that would show every task for most every configuration. I would then like to be able to hide sections that do not pertain to a specific customer I may be working with. Thus when I print, the customer only gets the information that pertains to them.

Eventually I would like to automate this by having checkboxes on the first page of the document. I could then click on my choices, then print.

I know you can select text to hide in Word, but is this more advanced idea even possible?

I am also kicking around an idea to use Access and some form of report, orperhaps using Excel and Word with some sort of mail merge.

Any thoughts or ideas are welcome. I am not that advanced of a MS Office user, but am willing to roll up my sleeves and jump in!

... thanks ...
